Porsche is back at Le Mans and it's building 80 Porsche 911 Martini Racing Editions to celebrate

Porsche has revealed the 911 Martini Racing Edition, celebrating the firm’s return to the Le Mans prototype class. It’s limited to just 80 units, with only two of them destined for the UK: one in white and one in black.

Prices start at £102,862, which includes the more aggressive bodykit of the ‘Aerokit Cup’ package, PDK, Sport Chrono and a Sport Design steering wheel. Other interior changes included Martini Racing Edition sills and a Martini badge.

The Martini decals are obviously included, too, but buyers will be able to specify them on a standard 911 as one of a range of accessories available through Porsche’s Tequipment range. 

Underneath the skin, the Martini Racing is just a standard 911 Carerra S, which means it has a 3.8-litre flat-six producing 396bhp. With PDK and Sport Chrono included it’s able to sprint from 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds.

Porsche has teamed up with Martini Racing before, including on the 917 race car, which competed at Le Mans in 1970 where it came second behind another 917 of Porsche Salzburg.
